Landmark Edinburgh restaurant has closed its doors after a revamp failed to reignite interest in the eatery.
The closure of Cosmo, which originally opened in 1969 and had seen celebrities including Sir Sean Connery dining at its tables, follows the restaurant's overhaul ten months ago.
Owner Keith Murray changed Cosmo from serving classic Italian cuisine to fine French food cooked by ex-Gordon Ramsay Scholarship chef Alex Thain.
After the refurb, Thain received several poor reviews and the restaurant manager left to join Cosmo's original owner's new restaurant.
A spokesman for Murray International Holdings said the restaurant would be closed for several months while a new more informal dining concept was developed.
